Fans are still poking around in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to uncover the game’s secrets, and one fan just found a nice collection of secret and scrapped weapons that didn’t make it into the full game.
User Brothy ! on Youtube made a video showing off several of these new weapons. Since they didn’t make it into the full game, some of them are incredibly buggy, while others are just wonderfully weird.
A large number of the scrapped weapons are outright invisible, with no models in the game, but Link will still wield them, letting us see Link attack and spin while seemingly wielding nothing at all. More interesting, though, are what seem to be giant version of Goron tools: a pickaxe twice Link’s size that clips straight through the ground, a massive hammer, and an enormous set of pincers.
Other scrapped weapons are more complete. There’s a lantern, still capable of emitting light, which has its own physics to let the lantern swing around at the end of the pole. There are a few different kinds of sticks, and some additional scrapped weapons from the bokoblins, including the horn that these monsters usually blow to summon reinforcements.
It’s an interesting watch, and a neat look at what might have been. Just what was Nintendo’s plan for that 10-foot-tall pickaxe, anyway?
